>~ IN 




THE ideal way to travel in summer is by water; for real pleasure-travel it is almost essential. The 
dust, heat and restraint of a long railroad journey are escaped, and in their place one has the 
breezy decks, cool staterooms, spacious saloons, and the freedom and pleasant social intercourse 
of life on a palatial steamship. In a comfortable steamer chair one may listen to the ripple of the 
waves, or watch a panorama of scenic beauty glide past, or join in the deck sports or dances. Excur- 
sions on shore, with trips in comfortable motor cars to places of historic, scenic or general interest vary 
the routine every day. The very word "Cruise" suggests pleasant thoughts and associations, and these 
Cruises in Cool Latitudes will be found fully as delightful as the title indicates. 

The Route 

The regions through which these tours lead the holiday-maker are replete with scenic beauty, the 
grandeur of Nature, memories and relics of history and romance, old-world customs and traditions, con- 
trasting with these the luxury and gayety of the most modern society and pleasure resorts. We 
trace the footsteps of the early explorers and voyageurs, Jacques Cartier, Samuel de Champlain, Rob- 
erval and many other intrepid souls, who first penetrated the Indians' wilderness fastnesses, and visit 
the scenes of famous battles and other epoch-making historic events. And practically the whole jour- 
ney is made by water, on luxurious steamers. In all the world there is no other route accessible to 
travelers for recreation and pleasure that affords such wonderful and varied attractions. 

Assembling at Niagara Falls, the site of the world-famous Cataract whose majesty seems to grow 
more impressive with familiarity, our guests sail across Lake Ontario to Toronto, Canada's "Queen 
City," whose modern attractions contrast strikingly with the old-world cities we visit later. After an 
automobile drive around Toronto, we embark on another of the fine steamers of the Canada Steamship 
Lines, Ltd., and sail the length of Lake Ontario, spending a pleasant summer afternoon and night on 
the splendid vessel. At Alexandria Bay, which is reached early next morning, we pause for a day to

Tadousac, Where the Saguenay and the St. Lawrence Meet 

enjoy the wonders and delights of the Thousand Islands, a region of exquisite beauty and a thousand 
attractions. Two motor-boat trips among the Islands serve to reveal all their charm. Resuming the 
voyage, we sail down the mighty St. Lawrence River, run its series of fascinating rapids — a unique ex- 
perience — and at Montreal the same evening transfer to the cruising steamer, S. S. "Cape Eternity," 
for the six-day Saguenay Cruise. This wonderful voyage has no parallel on the North American con- 
tinent, probably not in the world. The beauties of the St. Lawrence, here a river of imposing magni- 
tude, the contrasting sombreness and grandeur of the Saguenay, the pleasures and diversions enjoyed 
on- the steamer, make the Saguenay Cruise a memorable experience. Returning from the Saguenay we 
spend several days in Quebec and Montreal, the two delightful old French-Canadian cities, rich in 
historic reminiscences and survivals. Leaving Montreal a stay is made at Ausable Chasm, aptly called 
the "Yellowstone of the East," and again we take steamer for the famous trip through historic Lake 
Champlain and lovely Lake George to Saratoga Springs, the notable Spa and society resort. The next 
day is devoted to the popular trip down the Hudson River, always interesting, to New York City, where 
the tour ends. 

The S. S. "Cape Eternity 

which has been exclusively reserved by Thos. Cook & Son for these Cruises, is a magnificent twin-screw 
steamship, built expressly for the high-class passenger service of the Canada Steamship Lines, Ltd. Its 
construction and equipment comprise everything that can promote the safety, convenience and com- 
fort of passengers, and the appointments throughout are most luxurious. Spacious decks invite to out- 
door recreation and restful observation, commodious saloons and other public apartments afford every 
possible convenience, the large observation dining-room is pleasantly located on the main deck, and 
the cuisine is excellent. All the comfortable staterooms have running water and many connect with 
private bathrooms. 

During the Cruise on the S. S. "Cape Eternity" every facility will be provided for the entertain- 
ment and pleasure of our guests. An orchestra will furnish music for dancing and at dinner, the 
usual deck sports, card games with appropriate prizes and similar entertainment will be enjoyed, and 
everything done by our experienced representatives accompanying the Cruises to further the interest 




and pleasure of our guests. Our representatives will also arrange the details of the various shore ex- 
cursions, the hotel accommodations, the necessary transfers, etc., and take charge of all the business of 
the tour, leaving the passengers entirely free to devote all their time and attention to pleasure and

combines the opportunity of a splendid Cruise on Lakes Erie, Huron and Superior, America's unique 
"Unsalted Seas" with the St. Lawrence Tour and the Saguenay Cruise. This forms a most compre- 
hensive Vacation Tour of a little over three weeks which affords almost as much steamer travel as an 
ocean trip of the same length, with infinitely more variety. The Itinerary and other particulars of 
this remarkable voyage will be found on pages 10 and 11.

The W arid-Famous Falls of Niagara 


Sundays, July 18, August 1, 15, 29, 1920— Our guests 
for this tour and cruise are due at Niagara Falls 
from the various starting-points, and will be accom- 
modated at the New Clifton Hotel, Prospect House 
or Hotel Kaltenbach. The tour accommodation be- 
gins with lunch on. Sunday. During the stay at 
this world-famous resort we shall visit by automo- 
biles its most impressive sights, among them Goat 
Island, Three Sister Islands and the other noted 
points in Prospect Park for viewing the great catar- 
act, and also enjoy the wonderful Gorge Trip by 
electric sightseeing cars through the gorge of the 
Niagara River, passing the great Whirlpool, on the 
American side at the river level, to observe the 
wonderful Rapids, and on the Canadian side at 
the top of the cliffs. Dinner at hotel and room for 
the night. 

Mondays, July 19, August 2, 16, 30 — Leave Niagara 
Falls after breakfast at 9:45 A. M. for Lewiston. 
and take steamer for the trip across Lake Ontario 

to Toronto, a cool, pleasant sail of nearly three 
hours, arriving about 1 P. M. Automobiles will be 
in waiting, and we take a drive about the city, 
one of the finest and most (progressive in King 
George's dominions on this continent. At 3:30 P. M. 
we embark on one of the large and handsome steam- 
ships of the Canada Steamship Lines, Ltd., for the 
sail through Lake Ontario to the Thousand Islands. 
Stateroom berths are reserved. The afternoon and 
night are pleasantly spent on this trip, the steamer 
calling at Charlotte, the port of Rochester late in 
the evening, and at Kingston, Ontario, very early 
next morning. 

Tuesdays, July 20, August 3, 17, 31 — Alexandria Bay 

is reached at 7:30 A. M., and we transfer for break- 
fast to the Thousand Island House or the Crossmon 
House. Alexandria Bay is a noted pleasure resort, 
the center of the scenic beauties and social gayety 
of the Thousand Islands. Here the day is spent. 
There are altogether some 1,700 beautiful islands, 
some acres in extent, some mere islets, some wooded, 
some rocky, some the sites of great hotels, others of 
handsome residences and cosy cottages, a constant 
succession of exquisite pictures. Our guests take 
two motor-boat trips among the Islands and through 
the picturesque channels, one by daylight and one 
at night, the famous "searchlight trip." We remain 
at the hotel for the night. 

Wednesdays, July 21, August 4, 18, September 1 — 

After an early breakfast we shall leave Alexandria 
Bay by steamer at 7:30 A. M. for the sail down the 
noble St. Lawrence to Montreal. The whole day 
is devoted to this remarkable journey. After pass- 
ing through the Thousand Islands region, we change 
to the Rapids steamer at Prescott, about 10:00 A. M., 
and "shoot" the long series of Rapids, a thrilling 
experience, but one devoid of danger. The turbu- 

" Shooting" the Lachine Rapids 


lence of the Rapids is varied by long peaceful 
stretches, where the river expands into Lakes St. 
Francis and St. Louis. Shortly before arrival at 
Montreal the famous Lachine Rapids are run. The 
steamer is due to arrive at Montreal at 6:15 P. M. 

Here we transfer direct to the cruising steamer 
"Cape Eternity" and begin the Saguenay Cruise. 
The interest of the voyage begins at once, as the 
lights of towns and villages, of ocean steamships 
ascending or descending the river are passed. 


Thursdays, July 22, August 5, 19, September 2 — On 
the Cruise. In the morning the steamer passes 
picturesque old Quebec, with its lofty Citadel and 
imposing groups of fine buildings. We shall visit 
the city on the return voyage. Much impressive 

after dinner, which will be served on the steamer. 
The voyage is resumed at midnight. 

Fridays, July 23, August 6, 20, September 3 — Early in 
the morning arrive at Tadousac, a quaint and his- 

Among the Lovely Thousand Islands 

scenery is found below Quebec. The great river 
widens out like an inland sea; striking capes, his- 
toric islands, and the great Laurentian range of 
mountains on the horizon, are some of the features 
of the landscape. At 1:00 P. M. the steamer arrives 
at Murray Bay, a pretty, fashionable summer resort 
among beautiful hills, a center for some charming 
walks. During the afternoon we shall take a drive 
along the picturesque shore to Cap-a-l'Aigle. At 
Murray Bay is the well-known Manoir Richelieu, 
one of Canada's palatial hotels, with wonderful 
views of the river and mountains from its broad 
ipiazzas. There will be a dance here in the evening, 

toric little town on a large bay among picturesque 
hills at the mouth of the Saguenay. This was the 
first settlement made by the French on the St. 
Lawrence, in 1599. Long a fur-trading post, and 
the scene of Indian wars, it is now a pleasant sum- 
mer resort, with a fine hotel. A visit will be made 
to this interesting little French-Canadian town, 
which among other attractions possesses the oldest 
place of worship in America, the little chapel of the 
Jesuit Mission. About noon the voyage up the majes- 
tic Saguenay is begun. The channel of this myster- 
ious river, especially the lower portion, resembles a 
precipitous canyon, with towering cliffs rising sheer 



Toronto's Fine House of Parliament 

from the still, black water, which is hundreds of 
feet deep. The rugged bareness of huge granite 
rocks is varied by fir-covered cliffs and open bays, 
but the general aspect is one of sombre grandeur, 
unparalleled on the continent. The most impressive 
feature is the twin Capes, Trinity and Eternity, 
rising 1,500 and 1,700 feet respectively from the 
river's edge, massive piles of granite. As the steamer 
enters the Bay of Eternity, and into the shadow of 
these huge dark mountains, the stillness and soli- 
tude enhance the impressiveness of the wonderful 
scene. Ascending the- river, the steamer calls at 
Ha! Ha! Bay, a break of a few miles in the canyon 
of the river, a charming spot that derives its curious 
name from the laughing exclamations of the early 
French explorers who mistook the landlocked Bay 
for the main channel of the river. In the evening 
we arrive at Chicoutimi, the head of navigation, 
where the steamer remains for the night. Chicou- 
timi is a busy little French-Canadian town, prettily 
situated on a hill where the Chicoutimi River enters 
the Saguenay. It has a Cathedral, another church 
and a college, and a large pulp industry. 

Saturdays, July 24, August 7, 21, September 4 — In the 

morning the return trip down the Saguenay is 
begun, traversing again by daylight the many miles 
of sublime, awe-inspiring scenery. A call is made 
at the little village of L'Anse St. Jean, on the pretty 
Bay from which it is named, and we get an oppor- 

tunity of observing the primitive ways of life its 
inhabitants still preserve. Quebec is reached about 
9:00 P. M. 

Sundays, July 25, August 8, 22, September 5 — At 
Quebec, the "Walled City of the North," a pictur- 
esque and historic city whose frowning Citadel, 
narrow, old-world streets and quaint centuries-old 
houses, carry the visitor back in imagination to the 
romantic days of "New France." Quebec is one of 
the most beautiful of cities, especially as seen from 
the river, the Upper Town and Citadel standing on 
a commanding rocky promontory with the Lower 
Town and busy harbor at its foot, the lake-like 
expanse of the river, the green Isle of Orleans and 
the blue masses of the Laurentian Mountains in the 
distance. Its steep, narrow streets — some .iust 
flights of steps — ancient buildings and historic edi- 
fices and many churches preserve the atmosphere 
of old France of the Seventeenth Century. The names 
of the streets are in two languages, shop signs are 
mostly French, and peasants from the surrounding 
primitive French hamlets, many soldiers and tour- 
ists from all parts of the world make up the throngs 
one meets on its streets. Luncheon will be taken 
at the Chateau Frontenac, the noted hotel on Duf- 
ferin Terrace. In the afternoon a special train will 
take us to the famous village and Church of Ste. 
Anne de Beaupre, a shrine visited by thousands of 
pilgrims annually. En route we shall stop over to 
view the fine Falls of Montmorency, a cataract 265 
feet high. Dinner on the steamer. 

Mondays, July 26, August 9, 23, September 6— At 
Quebec. In the morning a motor-bus trip is taken 

Another Glimpse of Tadousac 



Capes Trinity and Eternity 

through the city, and to the old battlefield of the 
Plains of Abraham, where General Wolfe fell in 
1759. Afternoon tea will be taken at the Chateau 
Frontenac and dinner on the steamer, which sails 
at 10:00 P. M. for Montreal. 

Tuesdays, July 27, August 10, 24, September 7 — 
Montreal, the French-Canadian metropolis, is reached 
about 1 P. M. This noted city has much to interest 
everyone — historic churches and other religious edi- 
fices, fine modern buildings, and the magnificent 
wooded Park on Mount Royal, that dominates the 
city. This picturesque city has attractions of all 
kinds; among its fine churches is the handsome 
cathedral Church of Notre Dame, with a beautiful 
Lady Chapel and the largest bell in America. The 
old French Quarter is interesting, recalling the ro- 
mantic periods of Canadian history; more than half 
of the city's population are French Canadians. The 
shops, too, will be found very interesting by the 
ladies. Here the Saguenay Cruise ends, and we leave 
the comfortable steamer for the Hotel Windsor, 
taking dinner and remaining for the night. 

Wednesdays, July 28, August 11, 25, September 8— 

At 9:30 A. M. we take train to Port Kent, on Lake 
Champlain, for Ausable Chasm, the "Yosemite of 
the East," spending the afternoon exploring the 
famous Chasm and remaining at the charmingly 
situated Ausable Chasm Hotel for the night. Aus- 
able Chasm is a wonderfully picturesque canyon 
torn through rocky walls 100 to 175 feet high, 
varying in width from 20 to 40 feet, through which 
the Ausable River plunges and foams. Paths and 
bridges cross and recross the gorge, which is rich 
in foliage and ferns, and a thrilling boat-ride through 

the Rapids is part of the trip through the Chasm, 
which, of course, our guests enjoy. 
Thursdays, July 29, August 12, 26, September 9 — An 
early start is made for Port Kent, where we take 
the steamer "Vermont" for the interesting day's 
journey through Lakes Champlain and George. After 
traversing most of historic Lake Champlain, and 
catching a glimpse of the ruins of old Fort Ticon- 
deroga just before we land, a short rail ride brings 
us to beautiful Lake George, which is 245 feet higher 
than Lake Champlain. The afternoon is spent on 
lovely Lake George, the scenic beauty of which has 
been compared with that of the Italian Lakes. Sur- 
rounded by high, well-wooded mountains, dotted 
with pretty islands, its water of extraordinary trans- 
parency, Lake George is a gem of exquisite beauty. 
The steamer touches at many pretty landings, sites 
of summer hotels and camps. Lunch is taken on 
the steamer. About 4:00 P. M. we reach Lake 
George station and take a connecting train for Sara- 
toga Springs. We spend the night at this gay 
society resort and Spa, at the United States Hotel. 

Fridays, July 30, August 13, 27, September 10 — Leave 
Saratoga Springs at 7:00 A. M. for Albany, and 
transfer to the Hudson River Day Line steamer for 
a day's sail on the noble Hudson River, the "Ameri- 
can Rhine." Lunch on the steamer. This delight- 
ful journey down the picturesque river, through the 
famous Highlands and past the Palisades, forms a 
fitting conclusion to our "Fourteen Wonderful Va- 
cation Days," New York being reached about 5:30 
P. M. where the tour ends.
